Saw Turisas a couple of weeks ago, just before they embarked on a tour to America.
Missed the warm-up band entirely. The Saturday gigs in Tavastia start early (on account of the disco kicking off at 2330), and thus Daniel Lioneye was just too early for me.
Turisas played with their normal lineup, this time there were no massive orchestral manoeuvres on stage.
The setlist contained one third new songs, the obligatory cover song and a bunch of old classics:
Victoriae & Triumphi Dominus As Torches Rise One More The March Of The Varangian Guard To Holmgard and Beyond Save the Day! A Portage To the Unknown In the Court of Jarisleif Hunting Pirates Rex Regi Rebellis Stand Up and Fight // Sahti-Waari Rasputin Battle Metal
Had heard the March of Varangian Guard and the title track of the forthcoming album previously – the other two new songs sounded interesting and complex enough not to give a verdict on the very first listen.
The album is out in two weeks time, definitely looking forward to it.
